Egyptian Magic / Egyptische Magie

Today I went to the National Museum of Antiquities with Wilma to see the exhibition Egyptian Magic. It was annoyingly busy at first, people should know that it's not okay to bump into others to have them make room in front of a museumshowcase or to let toddlers and kindergartners run around and yell in a museum that's not designated for kids. It was hard to concentrate this way, so I was moving trough the exhibition very slowly. Fortunately in the end it got quieter so I did get to see the whole exhibition, which was quite interesting. On show were objects owned by the museum itself but also from the Louvre, the British Museum (I'm looking forward to my next visit, soon!) and other museums. Lots of objects depicting Egyptian gods, lots of papyrii, lots of information. Fun!

Vandaag bezocht ik met Wilma het Rijksmuseum van Oudheden om de tentoonstelling Egyptische Magie te bekijken. Eerst was het irritant druk, mensen zouden beter moeten weten dan tegen anderen opbotsen om ervoor te zorgen dat ze ruimte maken bij museumvitrines en dan peuters en kleuters in een niet speciaal voor kinderen bedoeld museum te laten rondrennen en schreeuwen. Het was erg lastig concentreren zo, waardoor ik supertraag door de tentoonstelling ging. Gelukkig werd het uiteindelijk rustiger dus ik heb wel de hele tentoonstelling kunnen zien, die best interessant was. Er waren objecten tentoongesteld van zowel het RMO zelf als van oa het Louvre en the British Museum (ik verheug me al op m'n volgende bezoek daar binnenkort!). Veel objecten die Egyptische goden voorstellen, veel papyrussen, veel informatie. Leuk!
